The Changing Light

The changing light at San Francisco
                        is none of your East Coast light
                                          none of your
                                                                pearly light of Paris
The light of San Francisco
                                                is a sea light
                                                                      an island light
And the light of fog
                                    blanketing the hills
                        drifting in at night
                                     through the Golden Gate
                                                          to lie on the city at dawn
And then the halcyon late mornings
                  after the fog burns off
                          and the sun paints white houses
                                                          with the sea light of Greece
                                with sharp clean shadows
                                      making the town look like
                                                    it had just been painted
But the wind comes up at four o’clock
                                                                    sweeping the hills
And then the veil of light of early evening
And then another scrim
                                when the new night fog
                                                                          floats in
And in that vale of light
                                           the city drifts
                                                                    anchorless upon the ocean
 

Lawrence Ferlinghetti (1919-2021)

Community Resources

As part of its mission, CHV does its best to provide useful information for its members, including local resources that can help them live fuller, healthier and more active lives. In a big city like New York it can sometimes be a challenge to find such resources. We hope that members and friends will take the opportunity to review the offerings identified in this Community Resources area where volunteers have assembled a list under the headings of General Support, Volunteer Opportunities, Health, Education & Enrichment and Government. 

We also welcome suggestions for additions to the current list.
